'Taking Pride in the Past': LGBTQ+ Engagement at Museums and Heritage Sites

This symposium will explore the ways in which museums and heritage sites can better engage with LGBTQ+ identity and communities.

Using their collections, stories and spaces to reinterpret current practice, we will hear from museum practitioners and academic researchers who have already started on this journey. This research event has been organised by Ulster University in partnership with Historic Royal Palaces.

  • Keynote lecture provided by Prof Richard Sandell, Professor of Museum Studies, University of Leicester
  • Optional LGBTQ+ Tour of Hillsborough Castle at 4pm

Lunch will be provided
